And the report continued to say that “Harder to quantify is the value of the work lost because of people being stranded”. Unrelated but in a similar outcome, many corporate employees were interrupted from their work this past week due to a security software glitch – the very software designed to protect them.
Together, these examples show that business and IT risks can come from not only terrorist attacks, cyberspace hackers, abusive internal users, but also Mother Nature and human errors.
